PRINCIPAL'S WELCOME

My name is Jim Murray and I am proud to be serving as principal of Tilford Elementary School, part of the Vinton-Shellsburg Community School District, located in Vinton, Iowa.

After graduating from Iowa State University, I had experiences teaching 2nd and 5th grade for the Wall Lake View Auburn School District and 4th grade for Storm Lake Community Schools. I continued my education at Buena Vista University, earning my Masters of Science degree in Educational Administration and then served as 3-5 principal in Independence. I’ve been a principal in our school district since 2003 and am proud to serve as both a learner and leader to the staff, students and families of Tilford. My wife Lisa and I are proud residents of the Vinton community. I have three children, Lucas, Logan and Lauren who are currently enjoying their educational experiences in our school district.

Our excellent teachers and support staff are committed to providing a respectful, caring and supportive environment in which all students reach academic success. Our staff and students both welcome and value the support of our families, volunteer and resources provided by our outstanding community.

Please feel free to visit our school. We would love to share with you all the great learning that is happening at Tilford Elementary School!
